In 2020, NTE, with the support of LTCFF, launched a grant program for Family Child Care (FCC) and small and medium-sized Early Learning Centers (ELC) 

to help them recover from COVID-related setbacks. Eight FCC and ELCs won small grants to develop physical environments that were COVID-compliant, procure additional learning materials for children, engage in professional development for staff, and support parent engagement activities.  To read more about how centers used their grant, please review: Newark Trust Early Learning Contingency Grants Report.pdf
